Selena Gomez seems intent on reinventing her good girl Disney image, and what better way to make that transition than playing a wild child role in new movie "Spring Breakers".
The new movie will star Gomez, alongside other young actresses Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens, and even at this early stage of production fans are being treated to a constant stream of photo shots showing the girls dressed scantily in tiny bikinis.

Spring Breakers will feature as much sex, drugs, violence, and flesh scenes that Gomez, Benson and Hudgens fans could ask for. The film is written and directed by Harmony Korine, who also penned the controversial film "Kids" in 1995, and portrays the three young girls as college girls gone wild.
The filming of the movie was completed at the end of March, and throughout the past few months pictures from the set have constantly been released which has ensured continued interest in the girls and the movie.
In the June issue of Interview Magazine Gomez admits that she took on the role to establish herself as something more than just a Disney starlet, and to break into more serious roles.
Gomez explained to Interview: "It was getting kind of repetitive in terms of the roles I was picking, and I really wanted to do something that was completely different. It was a mark thing for me -- like, 'This is what I want to be doing.' I want to take myself seriously as an actress, and this was definitely a stretch."
She added, "I mean, I'd never smoked a cigarette before in my entire life. It was really funny -- they had to show me how to do it."
And if Gomez and her co-stars were hoping to break free from their good girl images, then they came to the right director in Korine. Benson has said, "[Director Harmony Korine] wanted to break us all out of the good-girl mold. For Selena, Vanessa, and me, our audience is all in their teens or younger, so they're not even going to be able to see this when it comes out-it's not appropriate."
With Gomez, Benson and Hudgens starring in the bad girls movie it is hard to see the film not being a box office success.
